Abstract

An important and fascinating look at how women kept the country running during the Second World War in Canada. This book uses excellent contextual information, tons of photos, articles, paintings, posters and other images to frame the words of the women themselves. All walks of women are represented-- the stay-at-home mothers who were taught how to make meatless meatloaf and recycle lipstick, the working girls who flocked to the factories and government offices to take up the thousands of new jobs, and the women who joined the armed forces to "free a man for active service." Wonderully well researched and presented. [Goodreads]
